About Me

My photo
Style Destino is my personal style space bout cruelty-free and vegetarian style. Fashion is not above someone's life and it is irresponsible when someone makes a fashion choice that involves taking a poor animal's life. I believe in style that has a conscience. We are in 21st century where technology has advanced immensely, there are myriad options available and any person with a desire can make things happen. So it is sheer selfishness and irresponsible behaviour when people make unethical fashion choices. Through StyleDestino I share everything cruelty-free and ethical in my style. I do not use any handbags, shoes or accessories made from leather (animal skin), the make-up I use is also vegetarian and cruelty free. Luxury and compassion can coexist stylishly and Style Destino is an attempt to prove just that. Vegan fashion is not about dowdy clothes, cheap bags, or tawdry shoes. I can just easily be vegan and trot in my Olsen heels, sporting a Stella McCartney luxurious vegan handbag while showing off my red lips painted with OCC lip tar!! I travel the world around and never find dearth of stylish, high quality vegetarian fashion.

Finally A Chic Plastic-Free Eco-Friendly Phone Case That's Biodegradable

No other technology has impacted us as much as mobile phones and while they are one of the best inventions of our lifetime, they are also having a huge impact on the planet.

Apple sold its one billionth phone in July last year and there are over 5 billion mobile phone users in the world and as per digital analysts, the number of total mobile devices in the world has long surpassed the number of people on this planet (a well over 7.2 billion) (Source). Most of us use a phone cover to protect our mobile devices - creating not just the e-waste from the device itself but tonnes of plastic and silicone used for the cover. Imagine the havoc it might end up creating on the planet considering all this ends up in the landfill

While you cannot stop using the mobile phones or change the composition of your devices, you can definitely ditch the cover altogether or atleast get rid of the plastic covers and switch to a more sustainable option.

For all eco-conscious people, this is the post that'll'make your day! There's finally a chic phone case that's 100% biodegradable, plastic-free and super durable. 

When I discovered Canadian brand Pela Case through Instagram and was instantly in love. Their cases came in beautiful hues of light pink, teal, purple, green, white and black with gorgeous grainy textures and the fact that they were also 100% compostable and made from eco-materials were just too hard to resist. Fortunately, the company shipped worldwide {for free} and I finally got a phone case that was chic and eco-friendly.

Pela cases are made from starch-based elastomer and recycled materials. The hero material used in their phone cases is flaxstic, invented by its founder Jemery, and is the term he coined for flax straw waste. Flaxtic has natural shock absorbing properties making it a great material for phone cases. I drop my phone atleast once a day (I'm not proud of it} and I'm glad this case offers amazing protection so my phone would last longer. I think the case is a little bulky compared to it's plastic counterparts, but that's just a minor gripe. It's gorgeous and eco-friendly material, quality construction and awesome colors more than makes up for the bulk.

It feels great knowing that there's finally a phone case that won't end up in a landfill. At $35 inclusive of worldwide shipping many may find it a tad expensive. But considering all the mindless indulgences we do in products we don't really use as much or that aren't half as durable, this case is worth every penny.

Gives Back: In addition to creating a truly eco-friendly product, the company is also involved in the 1% For The Planet movement and donates a portion of its sales to environmental organisations.

Variants: They currently offer phone cases for iPhone 6, 6s, 6+, iPhone 7, 8 (all variants), iPhone X and Samsung Galaxy S7.
